WWII Vintage poster, Save Waste Paper, image courtesy of US National Archive

Here's one I haven't seen before.  During WWII, they urged all sorts of conservation, and this one was no exception.  Here they were wanting people to save all types of scrap paper.  Boxes, bags, newspapers, magazines, etc.

This is something many people voluntarily do today, though it would be nice to see posters around now reminding people to do it.

Hope you are having a great weekend.  We're hot and dry again, though there were some scattered showers yesterday but nothing substantial.  More later!


  1. Aren't these WWII posters attractive. And sometime strange. I saw British ones that said "Because all our products go to the war effort, you can't buy them now, but we want you to remember us when the war is over"!!

    1. Oh my gosh, I love that. That's pretty neat. Yes, I love all these posters (wish I had some hanging on the wall). The graphics are usually outstanding and they really make you think. I will have to find a copy of the one you mention, that's very neat. Thanks for stopping by!!
